You are right on the inhabitants of Gull Lake, they are generally fairly wealthy. I know some of them personnaly, some of them are well known local business people. Those that I know personnally are very nice, without a hint of snobbishness.

Homes on Gull Lake usually start a $250K, a lot of them are $1 million plus.

Fortunately, the lake has two public access sites. One unimproved with no parking. One modern witha beach, bathrooms and concrete launch ramps; It is always packed on weekends. If you want to go out on Gull Lake the improved lunch ramp is on the nort end of the lake on M-40. Plan to get there early on weekends or come during the week. There is a small launch fee, less than $10, it was six this past summer.

The lake is stocked with rainbows and used to be stocked with Atlantic Salmon. Perch, smelt, bass, and gills can also be caught. The boat traffic is intense most nice weekend days so fishing is difficult.

The lake is really fun to drive around on. The only spots for concern are some shallow bays on the west side, and a spot on the east side known as grassy island. I f you do come one of the things that you will need to get used to is the water clarity. Gull Lake has a madated sewer system, no septic systems. This is coupled with the good natural flows of spring fed streams into the lake and a good size drain stream. All this adds up to very clear water. One can easily see the bottom 12-20 ft. down. It can be very unnerving to see the bottom so clearly thinking one is driving in shallow water. Takes some getting used to.

Sean, the people I bought my Currituck from were rich, but very nice. They sold me the Currituck, because they just bought a `17 Outrage, the `17 outrage is not very stable, they took me for a ride, I always wondered why they made that size, the one they have is the older Smirk hull before the deep V. I can`t believe all of the pristine Classic Whalers all over that little lake! My Currituck is in Conneaut, OH. on Lake Erie, since the Zebra Mussels showed up you can see down to 30 ft. sometimes and I`m used too it. I am really going to try to make the 2001 Portage Entry Marine Whaler Rondevous this year! Hope too see you and others there. Regards-Jack Graner.
